Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
Your participation in the 17th Annual YMCA of Catawba Valley's Turkey Trot 5/10K Run/Walk and Youth Fun Run will help support kids and families in Catawba County by helping to make YMCA programs and services accessible to those who would otherwise be able to afford the full cost of services. This family fun day is hosted by the YMCA of Catawba Valley.
